General Metal Discussions » Favourite Thrash Bands
Too many to mention and I'm to lazy to make a list. To name a few ones:

Dark Angel, Sacrifice, Deathrow, Flames, Casbah....Slayer until 1995 before they sold their souls to crappy nu-metal, fuck yes I whorshipped them in my youngest years and now I spit in their faces (axe)
Hurry to see that no one as mentioned Pantera, I never understood why this shit can be spelled Thrash!

To my great joy I see the name RAZOR popping up in many lists...

They are the ULTIMATE Thrash/speed metal band.
Especially their early work with Malcolm 'The Sheepdog' McLaren'
is brilliant !!!!

Some of my favorite Thrashbands all date from the 80's...

Exodus
Destruction
Sodom
Dark Angel
(early) Slayer
(early) Anthrax
...

Fuck me, how did I forget HOLY TERROR on my list? I should be shot immediately, someone kill me for such a blasphemous sacrilege!!! (axe) (axe)

HOLY TERROR rule, I'd place them at the top of my list with CORONER, ARTILLERY, DESTRUCTION, RAZOR!!!

Oh my sweet lord.
That is quite a list there man.

Takes like a day or so to listen to one track of all those bands ?

Could you narrow it down a bit to say... your 5 favs ?

Now this is a hard Question. I would have to say my favorites are Strike Master, Slayer, Razor, Whiplash and Nuclear Assault. I also like Anthrax's Fist Full of Metal if you can even consider that a thrash Album.

Trash or not : Fist full of metal is a KILLER album.
BY FAR the best one they've ever made...
But that of course is only my opinion... (thanks)

Don't listen to a whole lot of thrash but there are two insanely great bands from where i live, namely:

Lethal (swe) (edit: was actually not going for the emoticon but rather state the fact that they're the SWEDISH band lethal and not the u.s, uk or whatever one haha)
Raging Steel

if you're into thrash and haven't heard these bands - do so immediately!

Onslaught - Welcome to Dying. Not a big fan of thrash, but this one i like a lot. Melodic and catchy as hell, and Steve Grimmet is an instant win. Although literally everyone bashes the album.

Difficult to rank them. I can give it a try and make it like this:

1. Forbidden
2. Testament
3. Heathen
4. Holy Terror
5. Exodus
6. Annihilator
7. Toxik

Then thre are bands that I do not feel like rankig because I do not listen to their stuff as much as the bands above:
Metallica, Megadeth, Overkill, Nuclear Assault, Dark Angel, Death Angel, Coroner, Voivod, Mekong Delta, Vio-lence, Flotsam and Jetsam, Apocalypse (Swiss thrash band), Agony (Swedish thrash band)...
